On September 30, the Red Hook Initiative hosted its annual Taste of Red Hook event at Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation. Dozens of local restaurants and vendors volunteered their time — and their best dishes — to raise funds for the Initiative. Check out our food porn photos after the jump — it might give you some ideas of which restaurants you should check out this weekend.

The Red Hook Initiative is a not-for-profit organization that offers a helping hand to Red Hook residents. They have multiple programs that support young people through their educational careers, and they provide professional development to ensure that local residents are given opportunities to serve their community. Overall, RHI focuses on building a healthy and sustainable Red Hook community.
